In Mold Labeling feed



In-Mold labeling has many cost cutting and value-added benefits. IML takes a separate label and places it inside the mold prior to the injection or resin. This creates a label which is chemically and mechanically bonded to the plastic product.


Added Value
* Better Resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and wash cycles.
* Chemically and mechanically becomes part of your end products.
* Multiple print technologies can be used with flexibility to form shapes and surfaces.

Lower Costs
* Reduces overall application costs...50% less than other printing process.
* Reduces scrap rate from faulty application or detachment.
* Eliminates secondary operations and labor also allowing multiple molds with one injection tool.

In-Mold labeling needs more attention than a Other Printing Process. The main ingredients to a successful in-mold process are: label provider; robotic system company; a static or vacuum company; and strategic planning before a trial.

The strategic plan involves choosing a proper label construction and a strong team (label provider & robotic company) to ensure success. ASTRANS has partnered with many companies across the country in order to help customer's receive all the benefits of their in-mold process.
